kilo tt parts to kilo wt?

I currently have a kilo TT with a front brake.
I've been considering getting a kilo WT frameset so I can run 35c tires.
besides the front brake and headset, can I transfer all the parts from my kilo TT to a kilo WT frame set? or are there certain components that I'll need to buy new?

You're going to need long reach brakes for a WT.

Also, the TT uses a 1 inch headset and the WT requires 1 1/8". You'll need a 1 1/8ths stem as well.

You should be able to swap over the bars, levers, saddle, crankset, bottom bracket, pedals, chain, and wheelset. Although you should probably get a wheelset with wider rims to run tires that will push the WT's tire clearance limits.

As for the seatpost, if you get WT that accepts a 26.8mm seatpost, you'll be good to use your TT seatpost. If you get a 27.2mm seatpost accepting one, you'll need such.
